our invite...



so after months of promising.. I've finally found time to photograph our invite! Ta Da..

I screen printed them all on my course and am so pleased with the outcome. I don't think I slept for 2 nights before I was so worried! typically I had left it till my last day to print them all - 200 in total. Anyway with a bit of help from the lovely James at St Barnabus press we finally got them all done in around 5 hours! It was epic but with the outcome sooo worth it!

design wise we went very modern, clean and chic. I think because we've got such a natural, country setting we wanted to do something that showed the other side of our personalities. The hearts are something that will feature in our wedding decoration and were our starting point so we've used them both on the invite and on the info card that we had printed.

materials wise we found a fantastic 700 gsm card in a lovely grey and decided to use a shocking pink with it - always a great colour combo. below are some pictures I took whilst making them.. ekkkk I hope you like them they've had great feed back from friends and family.

  5. Wowzers! I love them - particularly the little colourfull hearts on the info page.
    And I like what you wrote about what to wear - I so should have done this. I didn't think people would like to be told but EVERYONE asked over and over again. So - good call!
